As a reminder, all students will attend a remote orientation from Wednesday, September 16th through Friday, September 18th. During these days, students will be introduced to their teachers, become acclimated with remote and in person learning expectations, and be given a preview of the curriculum in each content area.
The start times for each orientation day are:
Grade 6- 9:00 am each day
Grade 7- 10:00 am each day
Grade 8- 11:00 am each day
Each day of orientation will be at least an hour.
Families will receive either an email or a phone call from your child's teachers providing them with the student's house, class and information to log into their 104 Google accounts. Each orientation day, students will need to log into their 104 Gmail accounts. The format for their Gmail account is firstinitiallastnamelast4digitsofID@104m.org and the password is the student ID/OSIS number.

Blended Learning - In-person Calendar:
Please click on this calendar link (Sept/Oct)for an in-person cohort calendar. Students should only report to the physical school building during their designated cohort day. Students will continue to attend class remotely when they are not scheduled to be in the building.
Class Schedules by Cohort:
Please click here for a list of class schedules by cohort.
Each class section has its own link with its own schedule. For those students in blended learning, you will find schedules are broken down for in person days and days in which they will be learning remotely. Please be advised that while we believe these schedules to be finalized as of this time, they are subject to change if an unforeseen circumstance arises. As I mentioned in parent meetings previously, our programming for this year has been adjusted due to the unique circumstances of the hybrid learning model. We have had to adapt our programming practices to ensure that class capacities for in person learning were adhered to, as class size limits in remote only classes were met, and most importantly, providing students with live instruction from an MS 104 teacher. We are unable to change student schedules due to these circumstances. We have put together programs that are thoughtful and provide students with as much of the usual content as they would normally receive. I thank you for your understanding regarding this matter.
